Eye Frames Rate

The refresh rate (most commonly the "vertical refresh rate", "vertical scan rate" for CRTs) is the number of times in a second that a display hardware draws the data. This is distinct from the measure of frame rate in that the refresh rate includes the repeated drawing of identical frames, while frame rate measures how often a video source can feed an entire frame of new data to a display.
For example, most movie projectors advance from one frame to the next one 24 times each second. But each frame is illuminated two or three times before the next frame is projected using a shutter in front of its lamp. As a result, the movie projector runs at 24 frames per second, but has a 48 or 72 Hz refresh rate.
On CRT displays, increasing the refresh rate decreases flickering, thereby...

It's the same nonsense that surrounds frame rate - the human eye can exceed 200 frames per second - but it's absolute.

These principles came as a result of reflection about their practice and through Disney’s desire to devise a way of animating that seemed more ‘real’ in terms of how things moved, and how that movement might be used to express character and... Squash and Stretch The first basic principle of animation is called ‘Squash and Stretch’ the action of which gives the illusion of weight and volume to a character or object as it moves. This principle is useful for a wide range of animation, from animating dialogue and creating facial expressions to animating a bouncing ball or expressing the body weight of a person when they are moving. when a character is about to run or jump, if they crouch down before jumping or lean back before they are about to run it gives the audience that.

It's that time of year again where fanatical sports geeks from all around the country converge on Wellington for a weekend of beer and Blood Bowl. Gamers came from Auckland to Christchurch and everywhere in between to catch up, drink excessively, talk smack and somewhere in between play some games of Blood Bowl. While I'm having to cut back a bit on my travelling to gaming events this year being in Wellington meant this was one I could actually attend without an exorbitant cost. It was a whole lot roomier and breezier than last year's venue as well which was a welcome change as the upstairs area at JJ Murphys tends to get quite warm when it's filled up with sweaty geeks. The build allowed me a 1,100,000 gp team with 51 Star Player Points spread amongst the players.

Air gun eye injuries rise 169% among kids, study finds

He removed his goggles for just a moment, to wipe away the colorful paint splattered across them, and then his life changed forever. At that moment, the 12-year-old boy, who would become Dr. Douglas Fredrick's youngest patient with an air-gun-related eye injury, was hit in the face a second time while playing at a paintball range in New Hampshire, Fredrick said. Without the goggles to protect him, the paintball caused one of his eyes to rupture. "It was unfortunate," said Fredrick, who...

Analysis of January interest rate action

Speculators are approaching the new year with an eye toward stock market gains and a tightening Federal Reserve. This is a tough combination for interest rate futures to rally against. However, commercial traders are holding their most bullish position since last April. Therefore we expect the decline in interest rate futures, specifically the 10-year Treasury Notes and 30-year Treasury Bonds to be a temporary effect of speculative exuberance, and for interest rate futures to rally through...
